The Cybec Foundation

Vision Australia Bursary Awards






The Royal Victorian Institute for the Blind established a Further Education Bursary Awards Program in 1995. In 2004 the Royal Victorian Institute for the Blind, the Royal Blind Society and Vision Australia Foundation merged, and expanded the program to include students studying in NSW and the ACT.

In 2005 the Cybec Foundation agreed to fund one of these bursaries.
